Valve cover gasket, oil filter housing gasket, oil pan gasket, rear main seal, front crank seal, power steering lines, rear freeze plug, vanos oil line, oil dipstick, ccv piping, vanos gasket, cam/crank sensor seals, chain tensioner, or intake/exhaust vanos solenoids are most of the areas where you can leak from.
